Communist Party Celebrates Obama's Reelection

Sam Webb's article on People's World
Many people on the left are happy today about Obama's re-election and that seems to include the Communist Party USA (CPUSA) leader, Sam Webb.

In an article posted on the CPUSA news, People's World, Sam Webb talks about how the victory for Obama is a victory for democracy:

"After a long and bitterly contested battle, the forces of inclusive democracy came out on top yesterday. The better angels of the American people spread their wings, as they went to the polls.
An African-American president was re-elected to the office of the Presidency, the Democrats unexpectedly strengthened their hand in the Senate and House, and victories, including big ones for marriage equality, were registered at the state level."

But Sam Webb sees this "victory" as something even more substantial, a sign that the country is leaning more his way:

"Moreover, the balance of forces - that is, the ground on which people fight going forward - has shifted in a progressive direction."
While I disagree with Sam Webb's conclusions about the big Progressive shift being the reason for Obama's victory...it is hard to discount one thing...

A man was just re-elected as President of the United States who has appointed known Communists to Government positions and his campaign was supported and endorsed by the Communist Party USA who is a known enemy to the ideals of Liberty.

If that isn't the most insane thing you have ever seen in your life... then I'll eat my tricorn hat.
